March 9, 2009

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Maryland's Sarah Mollison has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week for the period ending Sunday, March 8. Mollison helped the third-ranked Terrapins to a 17-11 upset over second-ranked Virginia on the road at Klockner Stadium.

Mollison led Maryland to its second win over a team ranked in the top two in the country Friday as the Terps defeated Virginia. The sophomore scored a career-high six goals and added an assist to best her career-mark in points with seven. She also added a caused turnover and connected on six of her seven shots attempted on the night to move Maryland to 4-0 on the year.

It is the second week in a row the Terps have staked claim to the award as Laura Merrifield earned the honor last Monday.

Maryland returns to action Wednesday when it challenges its third ranked opponent in as many tries with a battle against Georgetown in Washington, D.C. at 3:45 p.m.
